....and the Op Shop Gods were smiling


Dress $25

I stumbled onto a little goldmine earlier this week.... I've lost about ten kilos over the last twelve months, and so most of my clothes don't actually fit me properly anymore.


Top $10 Shorts $10

I've been partaking in some regular op shopping trying to find some bargain clothes, and then this week I found that my local Salvos shop had received a couple of truckloads of Myer sample stock. On Tuesday my sister and I picked up about 10 tops and a skirt for the princely sum of $75.


Jacket $20

Today we returned for some more bargains, to find that they'd increased the prices, but there were still some more beauties on offer.

I now have an entire new summer wardrobe of brand new clothes for about $150. Now that's what I call a bargain!

That is so, so wonderful for you - the grey top is my favourite. Also great that you lost so much weight. Congratulations. Cherrie

Cam, I've got that denim jacket! Bought last year ('almost' full price at Myer) and been worn and worn and worn.....it will become a favorite!

PS Love the new header

nice stuff! snap, this time last year I was, well, fat after the twins so had to head to the shops today for new clothes! I'd never get good finds like that in sydney so 2 pairs of shorts and 2 tops at target for $106 was my bargain!

at least I have shorts and things to wear now that its warm! nothing more depressing than finding there is nothing to wear that fits!
